Updates: Guest Bathroom & Guest Bedroom

I have been lazy finishing up projects around the house.  I have always been good at starting projects, but get 80% done and walk away.  It's a bad habit, but I have a husband who reminds me of the unfinished projects, so that helps.  Here's what I hope to finish by the end of the year.

Finish This List:
-install shelf in guest bathroom
-redo curtains in small guest bedroom
-install curtains in small guest bedroom
-hem living room curtains
-hem laundry room curtains
-repair or replace living room blinds
-make labels for closet bins
-repair shelf in master closet
-add shelf to small guest bedroom closet
-take concrete to dump
-move dirt to low spots
-replace/move front gutter

I'm sure there's more, but I just can't think of anymore.  Even this list is 80% complete.  Hehe.

This weekend I did get the first two things on this list done.

This was a "free" project.  I had the shelf, artwork, and pottery already.  It's not styled the best, but it's what I have for free.  One thing off the list.

Last week I said that the small guestroom will be going through transformation over the next couple of months.  As part of the change, we removed the bifold closet doors, and hung floor-to-ceiling curtains.  The closet houses the litter boxes, so keeping the doors open left a rather unattractive view.  Curtains allow the cats to get in and out, but hide their boxes.  I also added a matchstick roman shade to the window.

 This will eventually be a lounge for us and our guests.  I'm planning on moving most of my "office" artwork to this room.  I have purchased curtains and a rod for the window, but I'm waiting to find the right chairs.  When we need, this room can be converted into another guest room with our inflatable mattress.

Are there any project you have completed lately?
